Dude... everyone gets tons of random FR's each day.. even my 4.000GS friend with 3 star reputation gets tons of FR's when he only played 2 games of Gears of War...
Its normal, just don't bother them...

Yeah man I get them all the time. What I do is just leave it up for a couple of days, and if I don't receive a message telling me how I know them, I just decline and delete it. No big deal, happens to everyone

Like InkedUp said if they dont Send you a Message for why they added you just Decline and move one but if they do and you think it's a good enough reason then add them. It's your Friends List.

yeah, i get these too. i try to keep my friends list filled with just real life friends and people i'm currently boosting with. then some people send random friend requests for no reason, with no message. so i just delete them. also, it seems whenever i'm on the winning team in gow2, or i just earn a lot of points, i end up with a couple requests in my box.

I receive a lot of random FR's. But, the majority of them, I know in real life.

Though as of late, I've been ending up playing with a ton of Clan members in CoD4, and when I do better than them. The whole clan decides to send me FR's and messages to join their clan.

If it's a name I don't recognize, I'll look at their friends to see if we have any in common. If not, I just decline the request.

I think the OP's intent was to discuss the friend requests that do have a message but for odd reasons (not the typically received ones from multiplayer matches), like "I was looking for a good Sunday recipe and hit the Z key instead of an S and found your gamertag, ZundayXx. Do you want to be my friend? My GT is IlvSundaysalots."

I never get random FR requests, I'm not cool enough. I imagine it is very annoying though.

Hell yeah, fuck random f/rs. im so tired of them, i get like one after every match on Gears2 or just because i happen to be 1st alltime in ranked on UMK3 so this is why i have my notifications turned off so i can check my inbox whenever i feel like it. Also i see some f/r i get they have the 'feel' of a spambot, not like the profile of a geniune person. Dont you just hate that?

I get a few from time to time, Its normaly some one who Has gone back 200 pages on the forums and have found a post where I offered to help out on a acheivment, Then they add me and ask if i will help them, I mean it would of been cool if they did it within the week of me posting it.

Best thing to do is.. Send a message asking who they are why they added you, Its normaly either.. You have a high gamerscore so they want u on there list to Look cool? O.o Or they think u was good so would want to play some games with u another time, Or.. You've talked to them about 3 years ago and offered to help with a acheivment and they only just decided to add you and ask for help. If they dont reply leave it a week and then remove the friend request reminds me i have to remove one, hate it when they dont reply and just keep the invite there. -.-

If I ever get a FR on Live I just send a message asking who it is, if they don't reply then decline the request.

If they sent a weird message like in the OP's case, I'll just invite them to a party to get them to elaborate some more.

I had somebody send me a friend request after playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance with a friend online. My friend kicked him out of the game randomly for some reason I can't even recall, so the guy responded by sending me, and my friend a friend request.

So people will want to be your friend even if you boot them from games, apparently.

I get random FR all the time playing Halo 3. It usually does not bother me but it really gets on my nerves after the kid talks smack then sends a FR.

I also get many random ones probably off of this site or from xboxamerica.com as well. It is crazy. All I ask is that people send me a msg. People that randomly get accepted usually get cleaned off my list when it starts getting close to 100. I actually just cleaned house of about 10 or so people the other day.

If I get a random friend request, I, like most others here, just message them to ask who they are. I mostly decline random friend requests.

Once in a great while I get random requests. I had to delete a lot of people from my list. Some are realizing I did haha. A lot of the time it's because I post for help, then forget I made the post, so people are still offering help or asking me for help, even when I don't have the game anymore. The thing I love is people who don't know me send me game invites for games like gears of war 2, and I don't won it. it's not even on my card. That or people write me saying they found me through the game. It's crazy haha.

Just don't accept, best thing I can say. That and set your settings to private, the more people know you have Halo 3 or GoW and have many achievements, or a viral achievement, the more people will contact you randomly and try to be your friend for the achievement in the most random/assanine way possible. It's cool to help someone if they want it, but don't send a random request, just ask

I get them all the time, they want me as a friend so be it. I add them if I have room... I really do not care. When I do the annoying "Send game request to all friends" on Gears they will delete me, I do not care.

I was going to make a thread about this the other day. I went out of town the other day and when i got back I had a message that was asking if i wanted to add someone to my hotmail contacts, this is never happened to me before so I got on my computer and looked it up and it was some stupid date finder BS. It surprised the hell out of me, I did not know you could get spam crap on live.

Ah...random friend requests. My day would be incomplete without atleast 10 of these things.

I prefer the ones with messages attached telling me to get a life.
